A culturally enriched gunman has killed at least two people, one of them an American soldier, at Frankfurt Airport.
It’s important to remember that this:
|(a)||is the act of a deranged loner,|
|(b)||reflects the extremist ideology of only a tiny minority of the world’s Muslims, and|
|(c)||has no connection with terrorism.|
If the U.S. government hasn’t already issued a statement to that effect, it will shortly.
Here’s the breaking news story from the Grauniad:
Two shot dead at Frankfurt airport, reports say
US soldier and bus driver killed in shooting incident on military bus which also wounded two others
Two men have been shot dead, including a US soldier, at Frankfurt Airport, German media are reporting.
The gunman, believed to be a 21-year-old from Kosovo, opened fire on a bus containing US troops on Wednesday afternoon.
Two men are reportedly dead — a soldier and the bus driver, according to German news channel N-TV.
Two others, also thought to be soldiers, were seriously hurt in the attack.
An airport spokesman Wednesday’s shooting took place in front of Terminal 2 of what is continental Europe’s second-biggest hub.
The US Army Europe said it had no immediate information on the incident but was looking into it.
The shooting on the US military bus happened at 15:20 local time. “It all appears to have taken place on the bus,” said police spokesman Jürgen Linker. It was too early to discuss possible motives, he added.
